Our docent class for 2015 is now full and further registration is closed. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for the 2016 class, please contact

Docents lead free, three-hour hikes on weekend mornings from mid-March through mid-June at Edgewood Park. Docent-led walkWe talk about wildflowers, plant communities and why Edgewood is special. During training classes you will learn about the history, topography, geology, plant communities, and wildflowers of Edgewood as well as how to lead a hike. Each class is followed by a hike in Edgewood on the following Saturday morning.

After training, you will be assigned an experienced docent for a “one-on-one” training experience and will also observe or help lead one or two Wildflower Walks during the spring.
